Hi Car people,
You all have helped me before so i thought i'd run a simple question by you.
A mechanic once showed me this product to buff out scratches, etc.
I think he said that it was ground diamond.
Is that right?
Anyway, can you tell me if i'm right about that and if so, is there a best brand of this kind of product?
Thank you.

Was it called TRU GRIT? This is the compound I use. It contains ground aluminum

i'm pretty sure the guy said it was ground diamonds.
tru grit doesn't ring a bell.
this is for superficial scratches.
he used it on a few on my car and it worked really well.

Yep;I'm not sure why you would need diamond dust to cut something so soft as paint. I can see it on very hard surfces but paint?
